Apply for a planning permit extension of time

How to apply for an extension of time for a planning permit.

If a planning permit has been issued and is either:

  • due to expire in the next 30 days or
  • has expired less than 6 months from the expiration date

you can make application to extend your permit (note that you need to meet the current planning scheme requirements if they have changed since your permit was approved - for example: garden area)
